Preparing for the turkey shoot

‘What the ... is the world about to end?’

‘Last shopping day before Christmas; what were you expecting?  To have the place to yourself?  Try the far end, perhaps there’s some spaces there.’

‘How about we head home?  It’s going to be mayhem.’

‘And what are we going to eat on Christmas day?  Tuna surprise?  No doubt you haven’t bought presents yet either.’

‘I was hoping you’d be happy with a tin of salmon.  Let’s come back later.’

‘They’ll be nothing left but tuna.  We’re never doing that again.  We either come out with a turkey or we die trying.’
